Sunday March 17th @ 1pm: ST. Patrick’s Day Scavenger Hunt! (Must be 21+ $10)*
Are you tired of the regular bar hopping scene on St. Patrick’s Day? Why not drink with a purpose and a chance to win some prizes! Join us for this epic scavenger hunt with a group of 3-5, or come alone and make some lifelong friends. This will be a St. Patrick’s Day you won’t forget. Your group will be given a Diana with an Instant Back, a pack of Instax Mini Film, and a list of items to photograph. Shoot your interpretation of the list and head back to the store to tally up your points. But, to make it even more exciting, you only have 3 hours to shoot as much as you can on the list! There will be some bar hopping involved so this is a 21+ event. (Sorry kids!) An extra 10 points is awarded to the team wearing the most green! READY – SET –GO!

Saturday, March 23rd 1pm: The Lomo-Caterpillar
The Lomo-Caterpillar is a super fun Lomography photo chain! Every person takes a photograph of the person standing behind them and then they pass on the camera. This creates a giant Lomo-Caterpillar! At the end we will create a video with the photographs from around the world. We have cameras for you to borrow or you can feel free to bring your own favorite Lomography film camera.
